Cap on number of supe aides lifted to exceed two

Members of the Board of Supervisors can now hire more than two legislative aides.

Proposition B was placed on the ballot to remove the specific number of aides allowed per each member of the Board of Supervisors. The City Charter says the 11 members can each only have two aides.

The change allows the members to have as many as they want, within the constraints of the board's budget. Each aide earns between $69,500 and $93,100 annually.

Proponents of the proposition said the additional aides would expand residents' access to city government.
